CHECK-IN at the event FROM 6PM to 6:30PM to be automatically entered into a raffle for four bottles from Washington’s Tunnel Hill Winery and Tsillan Cellar Winery!

Join us for a delightful evening of food, drink, and live/silent auction! Get excited--because this will be an evening to remember. We will be auctioning some of our most popular items from the store, gift certificates to your favorite restaurants, vacation packages, and Seattle Symphony tickets, and much, much MORE! Then stay tuned for our Dessert Dash as you vie with your fellow auction-mates for THE BEST DESSERT IN SEATTLE. The best part? 100% of the proceeds will go directly to expanding our Seattle store to allow even more artisans into our collection--reducing poverty around the world, and creating opportunities for families in developing countries to support their family and send their children to school. What could be better?

 Who we are

Ten Thousand Villages in Seattle, WA, is a fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted home decor, personal accessories and gift items from across the globe. Featuring products from more than 130 artisan groups in some 38 countries, we are part of a network of over 390 retail outlets throughout the United States selling Ten Thousand Villages products.

As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items. We seek to establish long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. A founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), Ten Thousand Villages sees fair trade as an alternative approach to conventional international trade.
